  1. Haroldo de Campos

    Haroldo de Campos, (1929-2003), gained worldwide recognition in the early 1950s as one of the founders of Noigandres, the Brazilian group of poets who set the agenda for concrete poetry. Campos earned a law degree in 1952, but never practiced in that profession. He taught literary theory at the Pontif’cia Universidade Católica, in São Paulo, for most of his life, and published several volumes on translation theory and on Brazilian and international literature. In 1972 Campos defended a controversial doctoral dissertation on Macunaima, a landmark of Brazilian modernism, based on the theories of Vladimir Propp. A decade later, his book on Gregório de Mattos, an elusive figure of the Brazilian baroque, also created a stir among academic circles in Brazil. Campos's "anti-logocentric" readings of Brazilian literature, admittedly influenced by Derrida's deconstructive model, have been of capital importance in the re-evaluation of authors such as Mattos, Kilkerry, Sousândrade and Oswald de Andrade -- authors who, according to Campos, constitute a "tradition of rupture" in Brazilian literature.

  2. Eno Teodoro Wanke

    Eno Teodoro Wanke (1929-2001), poeta, historiador e engenheiro. Em 1968 publica o soneto “O computador” (WANKE, 2000, p. 139), no qual explica o que é um computador da sua época e o apresenta em forma de verso rimado e metrificado. Usar o soneto para falar da “mais humana máquina inventada” faz lembrar a programação a que o soneto está submetido: número de estrofes e de sílabas métricas, tipos de rimas, etc. E curiosamente o soneto faz parte do livro O acendedor de sonetos, que, de certa forma, é uma referência a uma outra questão da tecnologia, a exemplo do soneto “O acendedor de lampiões”, de Jorge de Lima, publicado em XIV Alexandrinos, de 1914, uma referência ao lampião de gás, anterior à luz elétrica, que modificou a paisagem noturna das cidades no final do século XIX.

  3. Ana Hatherly

    Hatherly’s career as a writer began in 1958 with the publication of Um Ritmo Perdido, a collection of poems. Her interest in the visual aspects of poetry is apparent even in these early works. She would continue to explore and develop this interest, eventually successfully exploring strictly visual mediums of art, such as painting. She has held showcases of her visual works, some of which are still on display at several museums of Portuguese Contemporary Art. She has also made several films and is an accomplished translator.

    Hatherly has published over twenty collections of her poetry, which have been translated not only into many European languages, but also into Japanese and Chinese. She currently lives in Lisbon, where she is Professor Emeritus at the New University of Lisbon. (Source: Prague Writers' Festival homepage)
